What are your favorite Cruise Vlogs ?

Recommended Posts

Although I have been watching cruise videos for years I just started getting into cruise vlogs. Here are some my favorites thus far:

 

1. Seas Cruisers - The Donohos (Amy and Elizabeth)

 

These are the gold standard as far as I am concerned. I haven't seen anything better and they have a LOT of content. Here is a link to their playlists of cruises:

2. SheaParker - Brooke and Garrett

 

 

This is the only couple I have ever seen that MADE MONEY on a shore trip :D Great stuff

 

3. iamthebosslady - Terri and Tony

 

My next cruise is on Carnival Dream so I really like that one. Terri and Tony are awesome too! :)

 

 

4. Adventures of Angela and Andy

 

Shows you details you miss in other videos

 

 

5. CruiseNYR

 

Only a couple of videos total but worth watching this young couple

 

 

6. sarahproductions113

 

Great production values being it is from a 17 year old Canadian teenager

 

 

 

I would love to hear about other cruise vloggers I can check out?

 

You got any to share? ;)

 

Thanks

I wouldn't call these vlogs but in my signature below are playlists of all my port days, with one or two from 'land' holidays that cruisers also visit. All the best, Tony

Take a look at my channel, which has LOTS of cruise videos...

 

https://www.youtube.com/user/jimzimmerlin/videos

 

I've got over 45,000 subscribers to my channel, and have had over 91 million views to my videos!

 

I subscribe to your channel and while you have a lot of great tours, tips, and highlights videos I would not consider them VLOGs. :)

OK, sure, I see what you're saying. I don't do a whole lot of talking directly to the camera, unscripted. I do a lot more scripted voice-over stuff, since I'm getting a little too old and too fat to be in front of the camera. Also, in a lot of my videos, I don't say a thing... I let the visuals tell the story. So, maybe what I do is a slightly different genre than a VLOG.

 

Another interesting YouTube personality whose channel is all about cruising is Sheri from CruiseTipsTV. Check out her channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/CruiseTipsTV/videos

Yup, I think you nailed it: just a different genre. Your stuff is great though. :)

 

I'll check out Sheri's stuff. Thanks for sharing the link.

I like Bill Raffel's videos. They've gotten shorter over the years, but they are fun and his narration is hilarious. He is a cruise critic member too.

Going on the Royal Princess in a couple weeks so it was fun to watch their Regal vlogs. :)

So would you consider this a vlog?

I think of it more as a podcast clip but maybe it's kind of the same thing?

Me and my buddy (Red Beard) just finished our very first cruise video.

 

 

The Adventures of Captain Dut & Red Beard!

 

now that we have one under our belts, our future videos will be more vloggy and less like a highlight reel.

We are just 2 buddies that like to get our families together and have cruise adventures. We hope you enjoy

Are you one of the Sea Cruisers Patrons that supports their ability to take all of those cruises? I am not sure if I admire the fact that they have pulled that off or so jealous that they have. Their most recent VLOGs have been aboard the Disney Magic but most of the time spent has been their infomercial type comments about the ears they have purchased from Etsy. They keep saying they brought $1000 worth of ears but they way they are talking them up and showing the business cards for them makes me think that they sure didn't spend that money themselves. Either way I agree that their content is pretty comprehensive, unless you like the night life, they do not usually partake. I also wish they and their kids dressed a little nicer for dinners but then again that could be my catty jealous that they took 11 cruises last year self talking :halo::evilsmile:

Yes, I am a patron.

 

They are big Disney fans and are very excited about their 1st Disney Cruise. I didn't found the amount of coverage about the ears to be "infomercial type" as it was a small portion of each 20-40 minute video.

 

 

Sea Cruisers remains by top cruise vlog channel by far. No one else is even close on the amount or frequency of the content.

 

I think people have their monetization concepts all screwed up. So it was OK for Charlie Sheen to make 1.8 for each 20 minute episode of Two and Half Men but someone produces 25 hours of cruise material and they shouldn't get a dime? Do people even fathom the amount of time and effort it takes to produce, edit, and distribute hundreds of hours of high quality video?

 

One of the reasons the reasons they get to cruise so much is:

 

1. They are Florida residents and can drive to all the ports

 

2. One of them is a travel agent

3. They book insides

4. Most of their cruises are not 7 day cruises - The ones that are were priced cheap - Example: Their Fathom cruise was $199-$249 per person for 7 days. They take more 3-5 days cruises

5. They can go last minute

6. They find unsold inventory on theme/group cruises

 

So in a nutshell: they go on a lot of last minute, short, cheap cruises.

 

I know this may sound a bit defensive but it just gets me going when people bring up the whole patron thing about them. Do you realize that Matt Hochberg from the RCCL Blog is pulling down over $1700 a month on Patreon and he only does a blog and a weekly audio podcast? (a whole lot less content than what Sea Cruisers puts out)

 

Why aren't people supposed to get any money for their work? :)

So, I just posted our first cruise vlog, which is part of a series of Vlogs from our recent 9 night cruise. It's purely for entertainment.

 

Enjoy, and if you do learn anything, consider it a bonus!

I started watching them from their Disney side and just recently started watching a lot of their Sea Cruisers videos....I'll say they're unfortunately pretty obnoxious about the plugging of things. I agree about the ears and they're def either paid or given to them for their endorsement. I am all for them getting paid for work but srsly they went on for two minutes or more in one video about their patreon plus the ears etsy information plus the ad at the start of the video. Choose a lane and go with it imo and if you're gonna do patreon then simply spend 20 seconds explaining you have a patreon and put a link in description. Don't spend minutes at a time on multiple videos going on about it basically begging for money. Plus tbh they have no production value at all....They don't add music or really any cuts that I can remember. They simply take videos and stitch them together. Not there is anything wrong with that but when you're kinda begging for money it is a bit of a negative.

 

I don't think Sheen deserved what he got either.

 

But to add to the list I'd recommend Josh Hocum. He has some fun vids and actually does a bit of style edits and fun stuff to produce the videos. He hasn't been doing it as long or as many as some of these but I really enjoy his vids...

The latest Disney Vlogs are definitely more "pluggy" than anything they have done in the past. I can't disagree with that. But I guess 2 minutes of a 40 minute video doesn't really bother me.

 

I personally HATE HATE HATE music in cruise vlogs and love that they share the natural audio. I cannot tell you how many hundreds of videos I have quit watching because of "production value" added to them. If I want to watch music videos I will go watch 1987 MTV. LOL

 

I already subscribe to Josh Hocum and a lot of others ones since I made the original post a year ago. However, Sea Cruisers still remains number 1 in my book, Nothing better out there in my opinion.

 

Go watch some of their other stuff like the Fathom and original NCL Escape Vlogs. :)

On the flip side of that...if I wanted to just watch someone's vacation videos then I'd just break out my old VHS tapes. I do think their videos are a fun watch though, and they are probably number one when it comes to the amount of content. I agree to a point that I don't really care for an entire video of just music with some video of cruising...But I think Hocum does a good job of adding in some music, actual vlog/cruising, some clever camera work, and some decent production quality.

 

I haven't gotten to the point where I'll refuse to watch their videos because of the constant plugging. But I won't pay for the content either because of it....Perhaps if they plugged it at the end of the video instead sorta sneakingly doing it mid video then I'd be willing to contribute.

 

I've watched their Escape vids...I'll get to the Fathom eventually. :)
